Re: LAW: Legality of deep linking to Web sites

Here in Sweden there was a case where I think both the first
(tingsrätten) and second (länsrätten) court upheld that it was legal
to make deep links even to pirated music. This implies that deep
linking to normal material too is legal. Of course, this may have
little bearing on the US situation. I also think there was an UK case
where deep linking was disallowed from one journal to another, but it
was a few years back and may have been overturned.
